This background paper presents a map depicting the prevalence of mental well-being among nationally representative samples of school-aged children in participating countries and regions in the WHO cross-national HBSC study during the period 1998 -2006. This description of mental well-being is based on three indicators: life satisfaction, self-rated health, and subjective health complaints.
